Bantos rods, also known as fighting sticks, are the primary weapons used in Bantos fighting. Traditionally, each combatant carries two sticks (or rods), one in each hand, but it is not unheard of to use only one rod, and leave one hand free. (ATL: "Sunday")
Goof: several rods seem to be in the shape of bokken. Which are seen being used one handed. Bokken are 2 handed weapons, as seen from the length of their grip.
Behind the scenesEdit
As a way to literally 'take the edge off' blade training, these rods bear a resemblance to the training tools of chivalric knights, and the Kendo stick.
